The Broadway Theatre was the second theater built by the Viano family, who also built the Teele Square Theatre, and later owned the Somerville, Arlington Capitol and Arlington Regent Theatres. It was a regular neighborhood house but could not survive competition from the nearby Sack Assembly Square Cinemas (later Loews), which opened with 8-screens in 1981. The Broadway Theatre was closed in early-1982.
Used for storage for many years, and under city control, the theater was slated (2003) to be renovated to become Mudflat Studios, a sculpture studio. However this was delayed, and Mudflat Studios began interior demolition and construction, to convert the theatre into a pottery studio in June 2010.
